Tarot Impossible: What Movie Is This?

Rw_moon Agent Reader, you've done very well so far with the Tarot Impossible game. Agent Tarot has come to us again with another query.

Rw_empress She did a reading for a character who gave this clue, "I was one of the top ten money-making movies of 2010." She did the reading but forgot to ask what the movie was. She wanted to see it if she could.

Here are the cards for this reading.

The movie begins with the Devil and the King of Coins Rx

Then the Three of Cups enter and the Fool shows up.

The Empress Rx figures in as well as the Moon.

 We end with a Knight of Swords Rx and the 6 of Cups for our happily ever after.

What movie is this?

How To Find A Tarot Conference part 3 of 3

This is the third in our series on how to find others to study the Tarot with.


By Sheri Harshberger.

TarotConference1 I've gone to a few Tarot conferences, so I am asked frequently whether it is worth it or not.  When I am, my answer is always a hearty "YES!"  The followup questions are frequently "but isn't it a hassle to travel?", "doesn't it eat up a chunk of time?", "Am I really going to learn something? Aren't they just going to talk about things I already know?" or "But I saw the agenda and I'm not interested in the speakers or topics, why should I go?"

Tarot Impossible: What Movie Is This?

Hello again, Agent Reader. Agent Tarot is asking for help again. She was approached by a fictional young man who wanted a reading done. She chose to do a spread that lays out two cards for each stage of life plus a final outcome card. The young man was amazed. According to him, the cards matched his life perfectly.

During the consultation, he mentioned that a movie had been made in the last ten years about his life. Even though he told Agent Tarot that the movie had been an unexpectedly huge hit, she forgot to ask him the title. So now she's turning to us for help.

Based on the reading, can you name that movie?

Early Childhood was the 5 of Pentacles and the 7 of Swords


Teen years was the 8 of Wands and the Lovers Rx


Early Adulthood was the Wheel of Fortune and the 10 of Swords

Final outcome was The World


Who is our fictional hero and what is the name of his movie?

How To Find A Tarot Organization Part 2 of 3

Last Monday we discussed how to find others locally to study Tarot with. You can visit that discussion here. Feel free to add your own local Tarot study group. Today, let's take a look on a more global level.

Paulina_3_pent There are many Tarot groups to join. Some are based in particular countries while others entertain an international membership. A good card from the Tarot to stand for group participation is the Three of Pentacles. This card is associated with groups and committees. Many Tarotists see this as a group project card. It is one that promotes the success you can gain through hard work, which is emphasized by the three people often seen on this card.

So how do you go about finding those other groups to support your Tarot need? First, let's look at some of the groups in existence. You may be surprised by how many are out there.

Holiday Storyboard

Wreath1 The holiday season is upon us, filled with sensuous memories from the past that sustain us, and loving memories in the making. It is a rich storyboard, with each individual story waiting to be written.  The Tarot is a wonderful tool that allows us to write our personal story in our own fashion. Arm yourself with your favorite beverage (coffee – full strength, please for me!), and gather near you the decks that excite you, the ones that want to go with you on this journey of telling your own story. Take your time – this is meant to be a fun journey!

The first thing that you want to think about is
